    Azalea Collections Tour, May 13, Mother’s Day! 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm, Meet at Visitor Center Lobby, U.S. National Arboretum

    Bring friends and family for this annual spring tradition. Stroll along wooded hillside trails amid a brilliant spring display of blooming azaleas while learning about the origins and culture of these popular shrubs. Barbara Bullock, long-time curator of the renowned Arboretum Azalea Collections, tells the story of how Arboretum research has contributed hundreds of new varieties for gardeners, gives expert advice on all aspects of growing azaleas, and answers your questions. See first-hand the progress of the Glenn Dale Hillside Renewal Project, a major renovation to improve conditions to increase the vigor and bloom production of thousands of azaleas by controlling invasives, pruning, and thinning select saplings. Fee: $15 ($12 FONA) Registration required.
